Kirine: Descibes herself as "Linguist by my head, singer by my heart... light by my true being."  'Kitty' is the voice behind many of Joe's music and videos. She is also his go-to translator of all the Cathy and Janice Bedtime Stories (See link below)
Born in Romania in 1980, she has earned a BA in translating and interpreting for Romanian, English and German. In addition, she speaks three more languages (Italian, French and Spanish) and is able to sing in several others, due to a fine linguistic sense.
After working for 11 years as an interpreter, tour guide and course supervisor at a meditation center, she has decided to take a leap of faith and start doing what she had always been dreaming of: be a musician. And because the Universe loves brave people who go after their dreams, things fell quickly into place. In the meantime, she has moved to Germany to be with her true love.
With a natural angel-like soprano voice and a feel and taste for harmonies, she now works as a freelancer singer and composer together with her husband, also a musician (composer, keyboardist and drummer), on various projects, ranging from children songs to ambiental music, and even alternative rock tracks.   
She hasn't forgotten her linguistic talent, but has adapted it nicely to her work; thus, her current focus is on translating and tweaking poetry and lyrics and singing in as many languages as possible.
